PIKESVILLE, Md. (AP)- Vice President Joe Biden will join Sen. Barbara Mikulski in Pikesville to highlight funding directed toward clearing a backlog of hundreds of thousands of untested rape kits.

Biden and Mikulski will meet at the Maryland State Police Forensic Science Laboratory Monday and discuss a $41 million fund earmarked in the federal spending budget for reducing rape kit backlogs.

The funding will go toward testing current kits, avoiding future backlogs and providing training and personnel.
